Vegetable Plots October 2018

One sunny day in September, a volunteering team from Nationwide Building Society came into school and transformed our ‘slightly overgrown’ vegetable plots.  As you can see from the photographs below, it certainly was a transformation.    Then one sunny Saturday in October, a group of parents very generously gave up their morning to prepare the beds for winter and lay bark around the paths.  After two days of hard work and sweat, the 9 beds are now ready to be planted in February.  Thank you to everyone involved.

Middle Phase visit to the Museum

On Wednesday 10th October, the children in Middle Phase travelled to the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes which holds 500 Stone Age period objects, including 30 pieces of gold treasure, together with archaeology, art, natural history and local history. During the day, the children experienced 3 different activities:

  • A workshop about life in the Stone Age, where the children handled real and replica artefacts and dressed up.
  • An art-based workshop where the children created a gold lozenge, and a beaded necklace or bracelet.
  • A tour of the museum where the children saw real artefacts and learnt a lot about life locally during the Stone and Bronze Age.

The children had a fantastic day and impressed the museum staff with their knowledge of these historic periods.  The day was finished off perfectly with a drive through Avebury to view the standing stones, one of the greatest marvels of prehistoric Britain.
